    Thank you ladies for your replies. I hope a miricle happens and I can actually start functioning. Wrist bands do nothing for me unfortunately.... I will try these lollies... If not I might just pull my hair out

    I found chewing ice and very very ICe cold water sips helped. I also don't take preg vitamins, just Folic Acid.

    Also do try chewing gum or minty things.

    It sounds like you could have HG. You will need to work with your medical professionals to help get you through.

    Oh you poor thing. I remember being do happy to find out I was pregnant and then a week later (5weekd) being hit with horrible morning sickness which was actually HG. I spent days in bed and hated how I was feeling and thinking I can't do this.
    It goes get easier! I took zofran daily, sometimes 2 tablets a day until 18werkd With the odd Maxlon shoots on days I couldn't keep the zofran down.
    I found sucking on ivy poles helped, sipping water, apple juice and having small amounts of crackers or rice cakes helped at the start. My OB pointed out that its more important to keep hydrated and not to worry about the amount I was eating as bub required a small amount of nutrients at the start. I was also a similar weight and lost 5kg before I started to put weight on again. I ended up a health weight at the end of pregnancy with a healthy bub. You'll be fine, just make yourself comfortable. Good luck.

    THank you to all who have contributed. Today I believe is week 7 for me and as of yesteryear day the symptoms have eased.
    i wake up 2 ice a night and snack on Pringles, then 7 am I have my cereal. Off to bed, then a snack around 11 few fruits. Managed filet o fish and some bBY chicken with salad last night.
    as soon as I come home I start dry retching. Luckily kept it all in.
    i am crossing fingers and toes that it is improving and not coming back. Stopped taking preg vitamins so will just take folate.
    maxolon and zfran are actually not safe for me as they interact with another med imtaking

    Not sure if anyone is still following, but week 9 for me tomorrow. Vomiting has eased and I am managing to keep food down for the past 3 days, however still dry retching. Weight is 46.6kg so praying it is only going to go up from now on.

    Hopefully things continue to ease a little more each day for you Russian, it's promising that you're now able to have baby steps and keep a little food down.
    Just remember to stay well hydrated as much as you can. Thanks for the update!

    I've just found this thread! I've been going through a similar thing. I'm 8+4 and have tried maxalon, zofran and neither worked. Finally I'm on prednisolone, b6 and phrnergan which has changed my world. I'm still not right but I'm so much better than I was. It was really such a scary few weeks thinking it would never end.
